I can't build kawa on rawhide (gcj 4.1.2) due to errors like the
[javac] 1. ERROR in
/home/BUILD/kawa-1.9.1/gnu/lists/PrintConsumer.java (at line 9)
[javac] public class PrintConsumer extends PrintWriter
[javac] Exception IOException in throws clause of
Writer.append(CharSequence, int, int) is not compatible with
PrintWriter.append(CharSequence, int, int)
And, indeed, our PrintWriter.append methods don't throw IOException.
The PrintWriter.append methods in OpenJDK don't either.
PrintWriter.append(c) calls out.write(c), which catches IOException
and doesn't re-throw it.
Is this a bug?
